1/5 Terrible

Poor customer service experience. It's a shame having a front desk staff who isn't able to assist. The fact that they direct customers to on online portal, or to call an overloaded help desk while they have something physically standing in front of you is not what I expect from a hotel such as this.

This hotel is in a perfect location. Next to a lot of parking garages. 5 mins from central park and less then a block from 5th Ave. Stuff were very welcoming. The shower was an experience within itself. Hands down best shower in NYC

After any kind of trip, long or short, who wants to have a complicated and prolonged check in? I can almost understand the health survey that needed filling out. Not sure why they did not tell me ahead but I will give them that. These are still unique times. I still can't explain why they needed to have me go to their website and have my photo scanned in and use facial recognition software to confirm that the image on my drivers license, that they uploaded as well, was the same as the one they just took. All of this to check in a room that is supposed to be a "better way to stay" for a couple of nights? Sure, if you dont care about whatever may be left of your privacy. If you are traveling for business and do so frequently as well as want a little variety where you stay each time with different kinds or properties, then places like Sonder might make sense. You decide you are going to give a bunch of your personal information up like joining any other service. But facial recognition technology just to check in for a few nights? I thought and still think it was a scam of some sort. At this particular property, the WiFi was erratic and the TV did not have any input. Fortunately, spent little time in the room. Other problems came up that was enough to push me over the edge and write my first online review ever, good or bad, for a place that I stayed. Look around, you have plenty of options...
